A not overly restored May 1960 Morris Mini-Minor on BAT, with all its paperwork from new!

This could get strong money I think. Just needs a bit of sympathetic fettling - overriders, fuel pump…

From the description, this car was owned by Stan and Anna Trohimovich who owned Gray's Harbor Motors at the time. I met them in the 1990's when they would travel to British car meets around the Northwest to sell parts and accessories from the old dealership's stores. By that time I think Gray's Harbor Motors was mainly a Honda dealership. Stan died in 2011 and Anna in 2013 but they stopped attending meets long before that.

I bought a lot of NOS parts from them and wish I had bought more of course. I still have several issues of AUSTIN magazine from the early 1960s and the shops original Hydrolastic pump. The best bit I bought from them was a NOS mid-60s front panel which I believe is on a local mid-60s Cooper 'S'. Great folks and they are missed.

£9180 inc premium. Seems like a lot for just a shell that needs work and a 998 engine.

https://angliacarauctions.co.uk/classic ... -race-car/
998cc. This competition Mini, from the late 1990's, was raced by Graham Churchill. It was also believed to have been used in the ICS. It comes with a 998cc Mini Cooper engine with earlier 12G202 cylinder head and fitted onto a 22A1288 3‑synchro Cooper S gearbox complete with remote, however, we understand this car was raced originally with a 1460cc Swiftune engine in period. The Weber DCOE carburettor is fed from a foam filled alloy race tank and from a double ended SU fuel pump. Also supplied Austin 1100 large capacity radiator. 3 branch exhaust manifold, 2" exhaust system. Both subframes powder‑coated, fitted with Minisport Hi Lo adjustable suspension, Spax adjustable dampers, heavy duty Tie Bars, currently fitted with Cooper S 7.5" front brakes, also supplied with Cooper 7" brakes. All on a set of original period alloy Dunlop wheels. The car retains the fibreglass bonnet and boot‑lid and a handful of spare wheel arches. The original fibreglass doors are missing, so supplied with a pair of standard steel doors. The period accessory Sundym glass set is fitted into brand new screen rubbers. One rear quarter window is missing. It comes only with paperwork relating to registration URO 646E but there is no history or any other documentation present.

If it was any good, at £27K, that Red S looks like it went for more of an "Enthusiast driven price" rather than a "Speculator driven price".....

VdP 4R, even has a tow bar, could be a nice buy if the price is ok.
